Public Arts Residency Program
Annmarie Garden

Solomons, Maryland

Annmarie’s residency program provides a serene place on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay for visual, musical, and literary artists to create works that address ecological issues and/or inspire community involvement. Artists have access to a private studio space in addition to a variety of classroom studios and garage spaces, a waterfront, and fifty acres of forest and field. Residencies are meant to focus on merging the arts and the environment and should include the involvement of the local community to some capacity.

Spring/Fall Residencies: residents are required to work with field trip groups and/or school outreach programs as scheduled.

Summer residency: summer residents are required to design a public art project that engages the visitors to Annmarie Garden in the art-making process. Summer residents are required to work alongside the public for at least 12 hours/week.

Professional and emerging visual artists, musicians, and literary artists may apply. Selection is made by an internal panel and/or by a peer review panel. Annmarie Garden accommodates only one artist at a time.

Average length of residency
• 1 to 3 months
• For summer residencies, 3 months preferred

Studios and special equipment
Resident artists have access to studio space within the living quarters (one bedroom), and are also welcome to use other gallery and classroom space as available. Annmarie has a modest ceramics studio with a kiln, slab roller, and potter’s wheels that are also available for use, as well as a painting studio with easels. With numerous indoor and outdoor exhibition and installation options, artists are encouraged think creatively about how and where to display their work. Artists should bring their own equipment.

Application fee: $25
